Hotel has a superb location - and that's probably it. Room was quite good, but it was so noisy outside, that it was quite hard to sleep, especially at the weekend. Thanks to the hotel for providing with ear plugs tho.... It was very humid in the room with the smell of an old wood, door to the bathroom was...

This hotel (not the 5 star one, but the 3 star one on the other side of the road) is a very good choice if you want to be close to everything in the city and avoid the usual worry about the taxi (very hard to catch) and metro (closes early). Also, it has free parking in the garden, a...

I had a big room. Old fashioned style. Felt really comfortable. Internet was working well. Staff was welcoming. Everything was clean and in a good condition. My room was located in the 2nd building. I heard the sound of the club/bar next to the hotel, but didn't bother me. If you need absolut silence you better ask for a room...

This is not the main hotel which has the same name but is at no.70 and is across the road about 30m away. This is the so-called business hotel. Rooms are ok and quite well equipped, if with rather old furniture and fittings. The bed was very comfortable. I had to be moved for a couple of nights because of...

I was searching for a different hotel near the city center as I am sick of these faceless 5-star business hotels which are rather expensive. The Donghu Hotel is a historic building, perfectly renovated but still looking like in the 30th. Nevertheless everything is on top level. Very good service, good breakfast and a nice surrounding. And with an extraordinary...

This was not a pleasant stay. Although they changed my bedsheets everyday they were still covered in dark black hairs and all over the towels (I am blonde so not mine). They kept running out of hot water. The electrics in my room kept tripping and I was told only to plug my phone charger in and I couldn't use...

The hotel upgraded us for free to a larger room. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and modern, and everything was very clean. Our bag was quickly delivered to our room and the staff were not looking for a tip. On arrival we were given a fruit platter and green tea. There was a nice sitting...

The Shanghai Donghu Hotel should not be confused with the Donghu Hotel in the same street. It is a 5 star hotel in a garden setting in a fabulous location in the former French Concession area. I stayed here several years ago and it was pleasantly shabby-chic, quasi French provincial. Since then it's had an uber makeover so that it...

The location of this hotel is fantastic. The area is so beautiful and interesting with many restaurants and quaint streets. The room was a pleasant surprise. We were very excited as we were attending a conference in Shanghai and decided to stay here for the area. The room was lovely with so many welcoming details. Who wouldn't be excited by...

The location of this hotel is unbelievable good in Shanghai while the service level doesn't match at all. Definitely the employee there is not well trained, the food is so so, no room service, lobby bar is definitely a waste, only one treadmill in GYM. Strong suggest not stay.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
